The Delta Method

  • Bruce D. Spencer
Part of the Lecture Notes in Statistics book series (LNS, volume 3)


This chapter is highly technical and is included to show that the approximations for moments of errors in data (chapter 3) and in allocations (chapters 4 and 5) can be developed rigorously. The reader is encouraged to skip this chapter for now and return to it if motivated by a desire to verify approximations developed in Later chapters.
